"Too bad you cant watch the video but basically they saw off the end of thermometer and put a thin metal wire inside the mercury so its in contact then from what they say they connect the wire to the antenna"I watched it. I watched "Lord of the Rings" too, but I don't believe it.There's lots of mercury round the place in dental fillings, switches, fluorescent lights etc. so, if it had an effect, we would all know about it.In addition to (presumably) being insulting this "and no dumbass it stops being reactive once its mixed with amalgam so it wont work" makes no real sense.I suppose that English isn't your first language and, while I applaud your ability to use it, I strongly suggest that you stick to conveying facts clearly and don't waste effort on insults.
"dude im not asking you to believe it "That's OK then"open up to new things a little"I did, I introduced the reality that mercury is so common that if it had any special properties we would know about them."a lamp is a resistor"actually, a lamp with a gas (like mercury vapour) in it has a negative incremental resistance,but thanks for letting us know how much you know about this." i dont see a reason not to believe it.."You will.
you realize that if people knew about that property of mercury there would be a chaos in communications systems? there could be a reason why they switched to cable only television in the US, theres no regular broadcast unless its a dish
No, it's not Ghostbusters. It is the British TV Detector.Yet, there are no descriptions of the internal workings of the device, and apparently they have never been used in a legal case, and thus never received legal scrutiny, or any other scrutiny for that matter.
"you realize that if people knew about that property of mercury there would be a chaos in communications systems?"If it was real then yes, there would be chaos.And, as I have said, because there is lots of mercury around, people would know about the effect (if it was real).But there is not chaos.From this we can logically deduce that the effect is not real.
